I love the idea. I imagining it to be like Steam.
Just remember, you can get a physical disc with UltraViolet. I don't see any downsides.
Get a UltraViolet licsense + disc. If ultraviolet does die, you still have disc so no harm.
I hate the studios, but seems like this is they're best thing in a while.
Would you rather buy the VHS, then buy the DVD, then buy the Blu-ray. THAT MAKES NO SENSE!
Buying the same move three or more times is stupid, and I refuse to do it.
I think that if I own the VHS I have the right to freely get it on Blu-ray or pay only $1 for upgrade to new medium. UltraViolet appears to explicitly give us this.
